Full Product Description
Alan J Spence invites you to fully appreciate the price paid that and women might not simply escape judgement, but find liberty in the sort of life that faith in that love brings. In ‘Love Hurts’, you’ll find a fresh consideration of the redemptive ministry of Jesus and how its reflection, in these short lives of ours, is the distinguishing mark of all who have come home to God.
The Christian story, argues the author, is entirely about the theory and practice of Gods love. Leading you through the Bible’s rich and diverse world of ideas and stories, he follows the route mapped out by one particular aspect the love of God. The meaning of this idea as it is explained in three key verses in the New Testament which determines the path taken through this fresh and compact summary of the central themes of the Christian message.
In examining the pre-emptive nature of God’s saving love and how that love is promised to us in the gospel, ‘Love Hurts’ proves that it’s possible to be both simple and yet profound. Starting with the conviction that the love of God lies at the heart of the Christian story, Spence proceeds to explore and expand on this belief in a compelling and convincing argument that allows the Bible to speak for itself.

Love HurtsJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
I'd have loved more longevity and a substantive conclusion that landed the implications and application of Spence's faithful systematics and thematic exegesis. This is worth the work.
Just as Rob Bell's popularist Love Wins might be considered accessible, this title is all the more accurate! An essential pastoral reader.

The reader is invited to consider the costliness of that love, the judgement from which it saves men and women, the sort of life it promises and the role that faith plays in responding to it. The saving ministry of Jesus is considered afresh in the light of it. There is also a reflection on why these short lives of ours have ultimate significance and the distinguishing mark of those who are blessed by God. Finally, consideration is given to the pre-emptive nature of God's saving love and how that love is presented to us in the gospel as promise.
'In Love Hurts Alan Spence demonstrates that it is possible to be both simple and profound. Spence starts with the conviction that the love of God lies at the heart of the Christian story, and proceeds to unpack this belief with nuance and insight, producing a compelling and convincing argument primarily by allowing the Bible to speak for itself. This is a book well worth reading.' - Brian Harris, Principal of Vose Seminary and Senior Pastor of Carey Baptist Church, Perth, Western Australia.
